About our Chapter

Mission

Our core focus is to promote environmentally sound landscaping practices and preserve biodiversity. We support native-plant community restoration through education and connecting with other native plant enthusiasts.  Some of the ways we do this is through social gatherings, educational webinars and in-person events, plant or seed swaps, educational garden walks, and helping our members learn from each other’s knowledge and experience. 

Wild Ones is a national network of people committed to healing the earth through native plants, organized in chapters. Because the Greater Baltimore region did not have a chapter, a group of us decided to get together to become founding members so the many native plant gardeners here could have a resource and network to share ideas and learn. For this chapter, the “Greater Baltimore” region encompasses both Baltimore City and Baltimore County, and surrounding areas.
